Arcadia rally
« on: November 24, 2012, 04:45:30 PM »
Well we are gettin closed to the rally date, What we need now are those that are comming but did not reserve yet, please at least call and let us know you are coming, yes we have plenty of dry camping space so we won't run out, but we are trying to pre order food and supplies for the rally,  we know the economy is slow, but spread the word we need support for this rally or its days could be numbered. It is basicly my wife and I tying this thing together, we put every dollar PLUS back into making it better. We ask for volunteers and get very minor response, our close friends we know are always there for us, , They are our emergency back up. but  we need physical help  at the rally and in the  Begging of door prizes and  goodies for the bags,  any ideas will always be looked at, My wife and I operate 3 businesses, at the same time and the waiting till last minute  is  driving her Nuts, We have Been there since the very first Arcadia 13 years ago with Jack and Paula, and will be there till the last, you all decide when that will be,  Now dont get me wrong, the rally will be as usual this year, just trying to remind those last minute rally goers to call and update us, pay when you arrive we don't care, just a head count

Wish we could make it not this year again lol we will be in Quartzsite for the Eagles,GM and Flx gathering sad but it looks like all the larger rallies are slowly migrating towards smaller more regional rallies because of today's economy no more Bus'n USA it's gone I hope you can keep Arcadia alive 

have fun

We're looking forward to attending as well.. hopefully our registration reached you last week. Sorry for the last minute nature of it.. but that's just the way we roll. :)

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

I hope you can make a go of it.  I really enjoyed Bussin' 11, but I can't afford to drive from Minneapolis to Florida and back too often.  I still have many years before retirement so I can only be gone for 10 days or so when I do make the trip.

Listen here, those who might be thought of as being regulars in Arcadia:

Get onto the communication device of your choice and let Bill and Brenda know you are either on your way, or not, to Arcadia for New Year's!!!

It's the devil estimating food when you aren't sure who is or isn't coming, and that drives up the expenses unnecessarily when we aren't there to eat it and pay for it.

If we all share a good time together over the years in Arcadia, then we also all share in a responsibility to help the organizers to keep the costs under control so that the opportunity to get together continues into the future, no matter how big or small the rally may be due to all of our other commitments or economics.

And, if you need 'em, perhaps speak with them about windshield covers for your coach while you there?

After two years straight, I need to make the 'rounds of family feasts over the holidays this year.

Best wishes for the 2013 episode!

happy coaching!

If you are asking us to all recommit to being there, it is my intent to be present at the event, plus I now have two other stops in Florida that have also offered to put up with me.

So count me in, unless a veteran calls and needs to go somewhere, though times are getting tight to accept trips, for now.

Thank you.

Dealing with me, it is required.

My bus will be there, I won't.

Believe my brother is going to drive my bus down on 29Dec.  Trying to find out if he is staying for the day or over night.
Will let you know, as soon as I know.

Ace, you have just as much experience as I do at the Wonderful World of Busnut Online Livestream Internet Transmissions.

Are you interested in a promotion to chief correspondent from best boy?

happy coaching!
